Don't do it! There's so much to live for!
You don’t know what cold weather is.
That’s not a jumper,
This is a jumper
Seems relevant here...
I was gonna ask what on earth you do for entertainment? Then somebody mentioned you had fourteen kids, and I thought I might as well withdraw the question.
Summer heat here used to be quite tolerable when the humidity was lower. The advent of tree farming has artificially raised the humidity levels in summer until sometimes it's like a trip to Arkansas in summer. Now there are literally hundreds of thousands of acres of nut tree growing anywhere concrete or blacktop isn't loaded and it's quite hot here in the summer. I'd still rather be too hot as too cold. I just move slower. Last summer I spotted a coyote chain' a rabbit, they were both walkin'!
Not where we come from, mate..... that's a dress..
btw.. how come you know so much about woman's clothing styles, anyway?.....
But the thing about Florida - I'm a person that's always cold. While I would love it in winter, I'd freeze my backside off in the summer months because everyone cranks the air conditioning which would force me to run outside just to get warm. Winter I can deal with - but unrelenting heat and humidity and being trapped with an air conditioner, both in the home and out - no thanks.
My sister used to wear jumpers to go to school.
You must look cute in one of those
hot days are good for wet sanding clear coats.... the body bakes dry in no time..
Never in my life have I heard of any kind of dress being called a "jumper"...
anything with long sleeves that's warm and goes over your t shrit is a jumper around here... pullover, sweatshirt, cardigan..whatever...
they're unisex, too... anyone can wear one....
Just finally checking in. Yup, too much fun playing in the snow up here. Not much of it yet, but we saw over 100 swans swimming in the nearby river yesterday. A true sign that winter is upon us. Nothing like having the woodcookstove baking some homemade bread and sitting in front of the main wood stove with a glass of wine while finger picking some old blues. Yup, nothing beats it.
Haa, the "gas log in the fireplace". An oxymoron or at least pathetic in every way. My son-in-law had the full screen fireplace scene on his huge flatscreen TV on Xmas eve. Yup, I shamed him big time.
It'll be in the teens next week, for some perfect firewood splitting t-shirt weather.
Well, I'm glad you're having such a delightful winter up there, I hope you get all the snow you can use or want. I went over today, it was quite a job, and turned on the gas log for a few minutes, and sure enough it still works. It is quite a job flipping two switches to get it to work. I reckon they put two switches on there so you could feel like a manly man and that you had done something to build a fire. Pretty cool actually you can turn it off from either station so you don't have to do the butt cheek boogie to get to the switch if you happen to be on the wrong side of the fireplace! I try not to let first world problems beat me down!
Quite fitting. Knocking little white balls around in a fake park and then going home to a fake fire. What was that movie where the city was inside of a dome of fake sky and everyone was fake? Very interesting.
We get a variety of weather here for outdoor activities. This year I've been fishing in 100 °F and hunting in 15 °F. With a little preparation, both extremes are bearable.
Yes you did, you senile old man
If you don't know or even care if it's fake it don't matter!
thanks for reminding me, sherlock.. you've made your point...
Sadly it is,
Fun there is none in that.
The right clothing and a good podcast made my hike around the pond better last night (37 F, light rain) than a summer night when there are insects and annoying people out.
Hot and sweaty are no fun just like too cold. I embrace it all. I visited my late octogenarian mom yesterday and she pointed out her new boots with spikes are just the ticket to keep her going all year.
Sure I look forward to an upcoming trip that will be two weeks of warm ocean breeze blowing into the bedroom but I'm also looking forward to some days when the snow's dumped and I drop into some steep skiing. There's wishing for one of those years when the big lake in our metro area freezes smooth without snow. It's amazing to ice skate for miles and see fish below your feet.
P.S. Winter bike riding is good skills building for pushing the limits in your summer riding. You can practice two wheels sliding around with far less penalty for failure.
